    Does anyone else think its hard to maintain an

    online friendship? Cause with me it's like trying to race a snail through a field of peanut butter. It just doesn't work.

    Didn't Last Forever

    I always wished for a long lasting friendship. I had one but it only lasted for eight years until she died. It was one of the hardest time for me. No one can replace her but I do hope I find another friend as her.

    I want to make some lasting genuine friendships

    with people who are also looking for the same. Good friends to talk about life and daily things we do. Want friends who can be there during good and bad times. I hope this is not too much to expect. Sexual deviants, perverts and predators stay away!!!

    I don't do well with friendships

    because I always got my guard up. Isn't there a saying : you have to be a friend to get a friend?

    HI ANYONE! I'd like to have a friend

    who I can tell everything to, and you could tell anything to me. I don't want this to be a quick thing. I am truly looking for genuine people. Preferably female, so I know how to talk to them, but anyone is okay! :)

    Meh..

    I've never had a friendship that lasted any longer than 2-4 years. We'd meet and be 'besties forever' until we went to seperate schools and completely stopped talking. I've always lost people like that. It used to be a sad goodbye, but now I expect it. It's happened before and I...

    Lasting Friendships

    The only real lasting friendship I have is with my boyfriend.  I can tell anything to him , be myself in front of him , and always know he is there for me.  My "friends"  all left me either when I had my kids or once I got into the Juggalette lifestyle.

    Will I Ever Achieve That???

    So, I want friends who would never leave me under any circumstances unless they are dead. Is it too much to ask for? I don't think so.

    I don't care what you believe,

    what race you are, what your sexual orientation is, all I care about is your personality. Nice, funny, kind, caring, compassionate, sarcastic, humorous, and supportive are all I look for in someone:)

    I think I can speak for some who've been burned by "friends" who ditched them because they were considered "boring." Honestly, I'd like to make a few close friends who not only need my friendship but genuinely want to be my friend. Oh, it goes without saying that I don't need...

    So my best friend (or who I thought was) keeps promising me promises that she never seems to keep. She and I made a pact on the last day of school that we would stop being friends with one girl who cause all the drama in our friendships. I told the girl I didn't like being head...

    A Real Friend

    Ive always been kind of a "loner", I mean I had friends and hung out with them but I never really felt there was someone I could trust. I had one I considered my bestest friend, a sister, someone I told EVERYTHING even my deepest most embarrasing secrets. After a year and a half...
